To check your subscription details, please:

I am already a subscriber and am now logged in but I cannot see details of my existing subscription in 'My Account'
If you subscribed or renewed your subscription before 21/02/2017, this is normal.
If you took out or renewed your subscription before 21/02/2017, it will not show in your account as we had not launched our new website at that point.
Please be assured your subscription will continue to operate as it did when you purchased it.
If you took out or renewed your subscription after the 21/02/2017 and you cannot see the details of your subscription in My Account. Please contact us.
When your current subscription ends – and we will alert you when it does - you will be able to renew by choosing one of the subscription packages (either Digital-only or Print + Digital).
I have just received an email notification that my subscription is about to expire. How can I make sure that it continues?
We will email you when your current subscription package is due to expire with instructions for how to set your subscription to automatically renew if it is not already set up to do so. Please note that when you purchase a subscription it will be set to automatically renew by default. (See below).
Renewing your subscription means that you can continue with the current subscription you already have, using the same payment method.
You can set your subscription to automatically renew by switching the toggle to 'Automatically Renew' in 'My Account'.
All subscriptions are by default set to automatically renew. You can switch this off at any time if you so wish in your account area.
Switch the automatic renewal button off (the button should be red).
My subscription has automatically renewed but I saw that there were two charges for it on my bank statement – why?
You may encounter this if you have subscribed to a Print + Digital subscription.
The cost of postage is payable in addition to the subscription price. In the case of a one-year subscription, the postage is €9 for an address in France, €24.50 for an address in Europe, or €30 for an address elsewhere in the world.*
When the subscription automatically renews, the subscription and postage costs are being processed independently which is why you may see two charges on your statement.

I have just received notification that my subscription has expired. How can I restart my subscription?
If you have received notification that your subscription has expired, then you will need to purchase a new subscription. You cannot automatically renew a subscription that has already expired.

2. First, choose one of our subscription offers (either Digital-only or Print + Digital) here: https://subscribe.connexionfrance.com. Select the desired length of your subscription (3 months or 12 months). If you would like to purchase any Help Guides you can also do so at this step.
4. You will then be asked to enter your email address at the bottom of the page. Our system will check to see if the email address that you entered is already registered. If you have an account with us under that email address, for security reasons you may be asked to log in again to verify your identity.
5. Once verified, hit 'Continue' to be taken to the payment page where you may complete your purchase.
